They look good, but in this business, one can never be sure.

Hi leonlevin,

Welcome to Salehoo! :)

You will notice that Link hidden: Login to view is not in our directory. This is because this site is a retailer. They do not sell wholesale. However, I think they should be safe to deal with.

I have checked their site and found that they are a well-established company.
Records show that the site has been existing since February, 2000.
From Link hidden: Login to view I am copy pasting this information.

Newegg Inc.
hostmaster@NEWEGG.COM
16839 Gale Ave.
City of Industry, CA 91745
US
Phone: 6262711420
Fax: 999 999 9999

Record expires on 01-Feb-2011
Record created on 01-Feb-2000
Database last updated on 04-Oct-2006



They also accept safe payment methods such as Paypal and major credit cards, meaning you can get your money back fairly easily if something goes wrong.

I haven’t used them personally but I found positive feedbacks doing google search. A lot of customers are impressed with their prices, shipping and service.
Here are links to the relevant forums that I found.

Been a Newegg customer for years ... was not aware that they did wholesale.

Newegg is legit; they're #10 on the Internet Retailer 500 list (top 500 online retailers) as of 2007. I'm sure they're higher now. The company I work for is often in direct competition with them.

That being said they tend to charge full price for many of their products. The service is consistently good, but it comes at a price.

A couple of years ago I made quite a few bucks using Newegg to sell on eBay. I sold maybe 30,000 dollars worth of processors in about 2 months and made it to Powerseller. Newegg gave me my own account manager and a discount.
I jumped on a niche for AMD processors, particularly the 939 socket type. Along with a couple of other sellers, we sold Newegg and its sister site Chief Value out of stock so many times, they probably were solely responsible for selling the overstock over at AMD.

Newegg made a transition away from account managers to a more impersonal business model and along with every Tom, Dick and Harry moving in, so did the profits.

It was quite fun while it lasted for about 6 months.

With that said, You won't find a better deal on computer parts on the average than anywhere else on the internet. Ebay is normally even or slightly more or less than Newegg.

Along with Mwave and a couple of others, there isn't a supplier here on Salehoo or anywhere else, for that matter, that can beat them.
